5.5 Ways to Style a Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits. The one piece wonder, usually trendy and flattering, almost always the fashion nemesis of bathroom breaks lol.
Since most jumpsuits are made with a lighter weight material, they make a perfect transition piece from summer to fall. You can style them in several different ways, making them wearable throughout the year.
I found this cute lace one on the clearance rack at my favorite store NBC. (halfofhalf.com) It was missing a belt and a seam had come apart, it was marked down from $19 (which is still a great price) down to just $3! It was easy to fix it's minor problems.
Option 1 adding a lace belt and black heels to keep it all simple. The wide legs and nude/black lace give it a dressier vibe so it can stand alone without a lot of help.
Option 2- A sleeveless leopard duster breaks up the solid color and adds a little visual interest.
Option 3- A basic black blazer makes it look more like slacks and a top. Belting the blazer gives definition to the waist. Any color of accessories will do, I personally love red with black and use it often.
Option 4- Adding bold color! A hot pink cami, belt, and shoes bring the basic black to life. Any color would do since black goes with basically everything. I added a vintage hat just to tone down the formality of it.
Option 5- A vintage silk shirt and tie give this a whole new look. This could be toned down by replacing the jeweled belt with something plainer.
Option 5.5 Here is the 1/2 option, just by pulling the sleeves down and off the shoulder, using a small safety pin under the shoulders to hold them in place. This creates a whole new neckline and you could wear anything underneath it.
I wore different shoes with each outfit, ShoeDazzle Madison is a beautiful pair with a large bow that matches the outfit perfectly.
